Hon. L. R. LaFLECHE (Minister of National War Services): Mr. Speaker, may I inform this hon: house that a detachment made up of volunteers from the corps of Canadian fire fighters now in the British isles has been organized for service on the continent of Europe in support of our invading armies. The Canadian detachment will work with the national fire service of the United Kingdom. The authorities in Great Britain have requested that no information be given out as to the strength of the detachment.
